Teaching the At-Risk Student: A Guide for Teacher Educators. Case Studies. Resources.
Steiner, Donovan D.; Peifer, Jane Hoober
This handbook is designed to provide teacher trainers with ideas and resources for preparing preservice teachers to effectively teach at-risk students. Based on case studies, the booklet provides a framework for fostering a more structured contact between at-risk students and teacher trainees. The first section profiles 12 case studies describing dilemmas that teachers, administrators, and drop-out coordinators face daily; these are problems without clear answers. The second section details activities that identify and deal with controversial issues concerning at-risk students. Following this is a section of resources published between 1988 and 1990 and dealing with the topic of at-risk students under the categories of books, case study methodology books, journals, guides and reports, and miscellaneous resources. The last section briefly describes model programs carried out through collaborations between colleges and universities and public school systems. (ALL)
